Total Time 35 minutes
Servings 12 muffins


  • 200 g butter salted, softened
  • 3/4 cup sugar light brown
  • 2 eggs jumbo
  • 1 tsp vanilla essence
  • 1/2 cup milk
  • 2 cups flour
  • 2 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • pinch of salt
  • 3/4 cup coconut flaked, dried
  • 1/2 cup chocolate chips dark


  1. Preheat oven to 180°C and prepare muffin pans by buttering or lining with muffin cups.

  2. In a medium bowl, cream together the butter and the sugar. Once it is light and fluffy, add the eggs one by one until fully incorporated and add the vanilla essence and milk.

  3. In a separate bowl sift together the flour, baking powder and salt.

  4. Using 10 strokes mix the flour into the butter mixture - take care not too overmix. The mixture can still have some dry flour present.

  5. Add the coconut and chocolate chips and fold in lightly just until incorporated.

  6. Divide the mixture between the 12 muffin cups and bake for 15-20 minutes. Remove from muffin pan and cool.
